The new building will also feature a lift that can "travel in curves"
A New York architectural firm has proposed a creative way to bend the city's restrictive property zoning rules with a new curved skyscraper that aims to be the world's longest building.
The Big Bend - measuring 4,000 feet (1.22km) in length from end to end - features a striking U-shaped bend at its highest central point. The imposing slim tower, when fully stretched out, would be nearly double the height of some of the world's tallest skyscrapers, including the Burj Khalifa (the world's tallest) and New York's One World Trade Center (the tallest in the Western Hemisphere).
